i’ve fallen in love with this beer when first i drank it. a really good taste, not much bitter, and the coffe taste is weak. despite the imported beer in italy usually have this kind of taste too strong.

Stratosferica porca miseria;migliore stout assaggiata, e non ci sono cazzi. Pensavo che fosse solo "per" le ostriche ma invece scopro che è CON le ostriche e ne sono grato alle ostriche, anche se non ho idea dove si potessero sentire. Cazzo andate tutti all’Irish di Quinto finché hanno il fusto.

Yummm. Poured with lovely foamy, frothy, fluffy, tan head with lots of lace. Color is an opaque pitch black. Aroma was interesting, it did have something odd, but maybe I sucumbed to some bs. Other than that, also roasty, malty and clean. Flavor was neat too; almost sweet, but not quite, very well done balance there. Body is very good and ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. I can drink the hell out of this beer.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Oh my, this is such a fucking classic! I wish I didn’t have to start with an expletive, but I just love this beer, nothing to do with the fact that I’m obsessed with oysters AND stouts (that spelling form is accepted, yes). The appearance does not get a max, as it looks just too browny and watery when it pours, but it is ruby black on the glass, with a fairly well-bubbled off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, tart berries and a great spicy vein of freshly-made vinaigrette. The flavour is just marvelous, with malts, grains, a touch of chocolate and plenty of berries. Not as salty as I would like, but still with bitter and sweet and a wonderful balance. There’s a bit of ashes in the aftertaste, but it still gets a 10 for taste. Medium bodied, it is well-carbonated, perhaps a tad too much, but with a nice creamy feel. Tasting this Oyster Stout was a milestone for me. Am I correct to say that this was the first oyster stout to actually use oysters? They’ve done a fabulous job. Loved it. Too bad NZ importers do not deal with Porterhouse...

My favourite stout at the Porter House. Much more flavourful than the Plain Porter with hints of oyesters.

11.2 oz bottle into my all-purpose Sam Adams glass. Cool pop top ring on this thing. Anyway, aroma is licorice, bread, fresh roasted coffee, toasted marshmallows; spicy and complex. There really is an unidentifiable aroma present here, like the label says. I thought that was funny they put that on there. Pours a dark reddish brown with a medium long-lasting bone-white head. When it does recede, it leaves a constant scrim of foam and milky lacework. Taste is bittersweet and a little sour in the finish. Oysters are noticeable, but not overbearing (I’m not a big fan of oysters). Medium bodied, fairly high carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

This Stout is delicious. Rich Creamy head, smooth taste, dark bodied. There is an actual feeling of sea breeze or something indefinable but nice about the scent. i am certainly going to order myself more of this one!

Fantastic!one of my favourite stout!deep dark with beautiful creamy head,aroma of dark bitter chocolate and espresso oyster undertone. As a pilsener lover I must stop after 2-3 pint.

On tap in Dublin Ireland. Dark brown with amber tint and tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Chocolate and roasted malt flavor with slightly salty finish. Creamy feel in mouth. Delicious with fish and chips.

330 ml bottle from Country Club. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and oats. Black with a big, tiny bubbled, glass lacing tan head. Flavor is coffee and oatmeal with a nice contrasting bitterness and a hint of molasses. Great Irish stout
